If memory serves me correctly car jacking was one of the prime reasons for FLA to pass a CCW law. It's definitely the prime reason why out of State people can so easily acquire an FLA CCW permit. At one time carjacking was such a problem that it interfered with the tourist industry so they had to find a solution to get people back.
More gun history. Did you know that the gun control act of 68 was significantly fueled by a single mishap in 1967? Someone was shooting at a can or something like that a mile or two offshore. The bullet richocheted and killed a woman. It was big news because everyone thought a sniper was on the loose and the media spun it out of control. If I remember right the guy who was plinking came forward and said he may have been responsible. It was determined that the bullet matched his gun and I think when it was all said and done they decided that the death was accidental. By then the damage was done.
So where is all this going?
I think you'll see FLA revamp some of it's laws over the Zimmerman Martin case. In particular the stand your ground law. I don't think it'll go away completely but will remain intact if the incident occurs while you're in your home or car. Everywhere else I think they'll adopt a retreat clause. It also wouldn't surprise me if they make it a requirment that you have to be a legal resident of FLA to obtain their CCW permit. I would tend to think as well that they might tighten up their training standards.
